Summer Institutes for Teachers

This summer, you can enroll in courses that will build your knowledge in content area and improve your instructional skills.

Molloy College Summer Institutes may be taken for graduate credit or on a non-credit basis for in-service credit. All of the Summer Institutes are offered in an intensive, one-week format at either our Rockville Centre Campus or at our Suffolk Center on the grounds of Republic Airport in East Farmingdale.

The Summer Institutes are generally offered during the months of June, July and August. The course descriptions, schedule of classes and tuition rates are generally available by late winter/early spring each year.

CTLE Credit
Each 3-credit graduate course is approved for 45 hours of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE). Click here for further information on the new CTLE requirements.

The Summer Institutes for Teachers are broken-down into three main categories:

Advanced Placement (AP) Summer Institutes

Molloy College, in cooperation with the College Board, is offering Advanced Placement Summer Institutes to teachers of Advanced Placement courses in nineteen (19) subject areas for the summer of 2017. Click here for more information. 

Summer Institutes (Non-AP)

The Summer 2017 Summer Institutes (Non-Advanced Placement) are offered in the subject areas listed below, as well as in a general interest area. Most of the Summer Institutes are offered on a four (4) day, Monday-Thursday, schedule, usually from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. each day, at either Molloy's Suffolk Center located at 7180 Republic Airport in East Farmingdale or at Molloy's Rockville Centre campus located at 1000 Hempstead Avenue, Rockville Centre. However, two of the insulites offered in the "General Interest" area below: "Brand Your Classroom: Social Media in Education" and "The Tech Savvy Teacher of Today (Grades K-6)", will both be offered totally online.

Each Institute can either be taken on a non-credit, in-service basis for $495 for 2 in-service credits or on a graduate credit basis for $900 for 3 graduate credits. CTLE credit will also be offered for each course.

National Grid Foundation - Teaching Green Institute Grant Program (TGI)

Molloy College and the National Grid Foundation continue an innovative institute  that was founded in 2011: The Molloy College: National Grid Foundation Teaching Green Institute (TGI). TGI is designed to train middle school and high school teachers in environmental issues and to provide suggestions on incorporating environmentally focused curricula into their classrooms.

Molloy College will be applying for the grant again for 2017. However, we will probably not know the status of our grant proposal until late March or early April 2017.

We will still plan to offer two institutes for 2017, with or without the grant: one for middle school teachers and one for high school teachers. The Institutes will be offered June 26-29, 2017, Monday-Thursday, from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. each day at Molloy's Suffolk Center campus in East Farmingdale. The Institutes may be taken as a 3 credit graduate course or on a non-credit basis. The institutes offered in 2017 will cover new topics not covered in the 2016 institutes.

If the grant proposal is accepted, we will send out an email sometiime in April 2017 to teachers who have taken the institutes in the past, as well as to teachers who are in our summer institutes databas. To be placed on our email and mailing lists please contact: Cindy Thomas, Assistant Director, Office of Summer Sessions and Conference Services, Division of Continuing Education and Professional Development by email at: or by phone at: 516.323.3554.
